  1. Oh thanks - I actually did try searching some auction sites - I was looking for a Freeman 768 I think - 1*+A farthing anyway - but couldn't find any sales or images.
  2. Is there anywhere to get better images of the coins in the plates in Freeman? Does Peck have better images?
  3. I have a .pdf of the auction of the Remick Collection from Spink (their site is a disgrace but notionally you should be able to view the lots on their website). Lot 1102 (in part III, auctioned January 2007) is a proof 1882 Jamaica penny with the note that 'This date and mint-mark was only struck as a proof. With note by Remick "V.Rare"'. If anyone has a .pdf with high-resolution images or knows how to get the Spink site to work I'd be very interested either way.
  4. Thanks - re the Robinson books I was wondering if there was anything in-depth about the coins in them - I guess not, so all good.
  5. The dent on the forehead isn't always there. But I'll agree with 6 - after reading some confusing descriptions and looking at some photos it looks like the D of F:D: on obverses 4 and 5 is rotated clockwise a little whereas it is straight on obverse 6.
  6. Yes I remember in one of his books he decided they were done post-mint - must be the latest edition because I remember them being in the tallies in his first book.
  7. Does anyone have a copy of "Great Britain Maundy Coinage Since 1822: A Guide to the History, Ceremony and Coinage of the Royal Maundy"? According to https://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v11n13a33.html it was published at http://site440.mysite4now.net/hoschcoins/site1/Portals/0/MAUNDYwork.pdf but it is no longer there, and the Wayback Machine doesn't have a copy either (just a copy of another book by Charles R Hosch: https://web.archive.org/web/20090207110941/http://site440.mysite4now.net/hoschcoins/site1/Portals/0/COIN DESIGNERS.pdf). And can anyone recommend "The Royal Maundy" by Robinson in 1977 or "Silver Pennies and Linen Towels: Story of the Royal Maundy" by Robinson in 1992? Is there much about the coins themselves?

    Can recommend The Uniform Coinage of India - bargain at that price too.
  9. The Fijian threepence was the only similar coin struck at the time but it was 6.2g I'll agree with struck on a split planchet.

    The portrait looks a little cartoony.
  11. I thought not all the 1915 recessed ear had the broken tooth?
  12. I've used a pin/needle combined with little drips of vinegar on the end of a tooth-pick - all very carefully.
  13. Indeed - so the 5+A is pretty rare I'm guessing, given that its unconfirmed in Davies.
  14. I think I've heard that the PVC vapours can get through the plastic. I wouldn't risk it anyway.
